What is and what will be by Paul Budnik

Integrating spirituality and science

This book starts with some questions...

  In this age of extraordinarily powerful computers, the human brain remains the most
  complex object on earth.

  What led to the evolution of this costly labyrinthine structure?

  Why is it capable of such wondrous ecstatic experience?

  Why has it evolved conflicting instincts, that can lead to unbearable anguish and pain?

  Why do spiritual and religious instincts have such enormous power and influence?

  What is their evolutionary function?

and then proceeds to try and answer them.

The nice thing about this book is that it has a very good treatment of foundational mathematics.
